SPIT Manila's "Discombobulated Boracay" and Why I Love Their Improv Comedy

The Oracle
I became an instant fan of Improv Comedy after watching the opening night of the 1st Manila Improv Festival, which is a 4-day festival featuring:

  • SPIT (Silly People Improv Theater) Manila led by Gabe Mercado;
  • LA-based American veteran improvisers Shaun Landry and Tom Farnan;
  • International improv groups from Beijing, Hong Kong, Xiamen, and Taichung; and
  • Performing Arts Kolektib (PAK) from Cebu; and 
  • Kinengkoy Comedy Express from Bacolod.

For me, SPIT Manila's improv set was the best, and my favorite was the improv story entitled "Discombobulated Boracay". Here's why I fell in love with SPIT Manila's Improv Comedy...

REPUBLIC WAKEPARK @ NUVALI First Look (from a Non-Wakeboarder Point of View)

Republic Wake PArk-41.jpg

Finally, Republ1c Wakepark @ Nuvali is now open! No need to go all the way to CamSur or Calatagan just to enjoy a world-class Wake Boarding experience. Nuvali in Sta. Rosa is just one hour away from Manila, and you can even go to Tagaytay to eat after. :)

We enjoyed the Wakeboard park in Camsur (even if we are not wakeboarders) because of its yummy food and water park facilities for the kids, so we wanted to know how this one would compare.

Here is a first look at REPUBL1C WAKEPARK from a non-wakeboarder's POV...

ROCK OF AGES Manila: 8 Reasons Why You Should Watch the Live Musical First!

ROCK OF AGES castIsn't it great that Manila gets to see Rock of Ages two ways--on stage and in the cinema--at the same time? The Broadway musical (Manila production), led by Mig Ayesa, opens just as the Rock of Ages Movie, led by Tom Cruise, starts its run.

I was given the chance to watch the musical's preview night--and it was an awesome show! It had the longest dancing standing ovation I've seen for a preview night in Manila. The casting was solid and all the characters lived up to (and some even exceeded) our expectations.

It was great to see the debut of MiG Ayesa as Stacee Jaxx, the same role he performed in the touring Rock of Ages show in the US, and Vina Morales in her first theater role.

This is the perfect musical for the '80s generation.

Here are 8 Reasons Why You Should Watch Rock of Ages' Live Musical Production in Manila first:
